process and Cost information:

After registering a project, choose the project type/pathway. The scorecard associated with the chosen pathway will be provided. Then, submit documentation to show the project complies with Fitwel strategies. This will then be reviewed by the Fitwel Certification team who will give feedback. Once the project team reviews and replies to the certification team to work out details, certification will be awarded. 

There is a flat registration fee for all projects, as well as other fees based upon square footage.
